    I had guessed completely wrong, after following Dave's thread above. Just from a pure sound standpoint, I liked Horn A more especially in the mid-to-upper register. Seemed richer, more core to the...

    I find Blue Juice's smell to be objectionable, so I use a synthetic. I've been using a 50/50 mixture of Yamaha Light Synthetic and Yamaha Regular Synthetic on my 4-year-old E2. Seems to work well - I...

    Throughout my Army career I played exclusively on Besson euphs. Initially, back in the mid-70s and up till about 1982, I played on an Imperial and then a Sovereign. I'd characterize the classic...

    Dave - you may want to update ACB's forum listing. They relocated to Kansas City I think a couple years ago. The link above still works OK.

    This is a very subjective question, and it will no doubt lead to very subjective answers. The individual player's sound is the driving force and that sound can be replicated on almost any horn.

    Put me in the "cold sore" camp. I've struggled with those for years.

    One thing I began doing that has worked for about a year now - L-Lysine. It's an inexpensive nutriceutical product available in...

    Glenn made a bag for my Kanstul tuba, back in about 2010 or so. It's the only way I've transported that tuba -- the hard case is just impossible to schlep around.

    Glenn needed me to take umpteen...

    Could not agree more about the mouthpiece. It's a paperweight, or will be when the Bach 5GS I ordered comes in. It was backordered, but should be arriving in the next few days.

    Another great point...

    Very unfortunate for Steven, but somewhere along the line with as much travel as he's done over the years, something like this is bound to happen.

    So I guess that means that flyover country, aka the Midwest, is represented by the tubas and french horns, right? :cool:

    Without rhythm keeping all that together, you have a mess.

    Wow, I saw the "banned" moniker and wondered a bit.

    This is probably the calmest forum on the planet. It would take something like this to ban someone. lol

    The German wind band instrumentation generally calls for Tenorhorn I and Tenorhorn II (these would be the oval, small-bore horns); and then Baryton. The tenorhorn parts (not to be confused with the...

    Thanks, John. I had not seen the "1 left" note earlier this morning when I looked, but did when I re-checked, so I bought it. Been wanting to buy a reasonably-priced baritone for some years now.

    I note the Wessex BR144, their brand-new 4-valve comper baritone just released last month, if what I'm reading is accurate.

    What's the wait time for one of these?

    Agreed. I've never really been able to distinguish the normal crud that any of my horns develops just because it's being played, versus the crud that develops from a valve oil.

    Well, with the smaller Eb, you never know what might happen in your band's bass section. I understand the lugging-up-two-flights-of-stairs bit. Ugh.
